Just curious:

Doesnt that change behaviour in the sense that __vlan_hwaccel_put_tag()
now always adds VLAN_TAG_PRESENT to skb->vlan_tci, while before that
change packet->vlan_tci may or may not had this flag?

In other words, should a variant of this patch be backported if it was a
bug not not use __vlan_hwaccel_put_tag right from the start?
